Training GHC staff on self-care (Bihar)
There is a huge number of untrained persons with Grade 2 disability due to leprosy in Bihar. With NLR intervention on self-care, a significant number of such persons have been trained in self-care but a large number of them are still to be reached and trained on self-care. With the existing resources, it may take many more years to reach to such persons with Grade 2 disability due to leprosy in Bihar. Therefore, by training health care staff on self-care, a large section of such unreached persons can be reached. Hence, this project plans to train key health care personnel on self-care in all the districts of Bihar. For this, a series of training workshop will be organized for covering all the districts in Bihar. Efforts will be made that the NLR India’s guidelines on self-care are communicated to all the key health care personnel in districts of Bihar. The project intends to conduct post training assessment to revise the training plan and curriculum based on assessment. The project will involve master trainers (mentors) in the second round of training to add sustainability to project.
